Going to be another short shrift day. Brother stayed with us for several days, just left a short while ago on the 2-hour drive home. He'd neglected to bring his insulin and stuff, and his diabetes, while not in awful stage, is to the point that he needs to monitor and treat regularly. He doesn't look well, and the extra 60-some pounds he's carrying probably don't help. I lent him one of my HCTZ pills for the BP issue, but we don't have the diabetes stuff (yet, thank You Lord) so had nothing to give him.
So now I'm trying to catch up on the things undone during his visit. For so many years, like the 22-plus that we were living a thousand miles from here, but also the 8 or 9 that I was living in this general area but hours from him and we were both working killer schedules, we've had little of that family time. With both our parents dead, we are now the Old Folks, and both of us have now lived longer than most males in the family had. So we are trying fitfully to catch up. But the result was that I have several days' of stuff to get done, and something has to give. Sorry.
The Old Testament passage here is Psalms 70, 71, and 72.
The New Testament reading is Romans chapter 4. VERY Good Stuff! Romans is a favorite of mine, and very significant in the doctrine of our faith.
